We often get to see many who say that their faith is in their heart; but their actions speak otherwise!
Know that in Islam, your faith must begin from your heart, uttered by your tongue and confirmed by your limbs (i.e. actions). So faith cannot be separated from your actions.
If you say you obey Allah and His messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم), then you cannot end up watching, hearing & doing things that are haram.
If u say you submit to Allah, then you cannot end up submitting to your whims and desires which go against the rules of Allah, that He has decreed for us!
If u say you believe in Allah and His messenger, then you cannot belittle those who stick to the straight path and emulate the prophet!
Living your life on Islam is much different than just uttering ‘I am a Muslim’, when you haven’t truly submitted to Allah!
